Just wondering. I took all my temps at the same time.

Mine did that if I didn't enter it at the same time. Sometimes I would check it and then fall asleep. When I entered it late, I had to change the time to when I really checked it or it would be an open circle.

You were right. When I looked the one was an hr later (the day I first started) and the other was an hr earlier cause I had woken up at that time. Would that make a difference?? I had forgotten about that lol.

I went back and checked and I hadn't taken those two at the same time. I had taken the first an hr later and the other an hr earlier. Does that make a big difference? I have my alarm set for five but I woke up at four so I just went ahead and took it. I don't sleep well that's why I was worried about doing this :/

I don't think a couple temps early in the cycle will make a big difference. I know temping is a big hassle but it really is worth it once you get the hang of it. It was so satisfying to see crosshairs. I rarely ovulated on my own though so that may be why I got so excited lol.

It did not make your chart go up or down in a crazy way so I think it is just fine

Lol I'm such a crappy paranoid sleeper that I keep waking up and grabbing my thermometer thinking that I didn't hear my alarm! I can't wait to see cross hairs tho :)

Honestly, I took my temps at a billion different times (from 4-10 am lol) and it still worked for me.  I'd try to be as accurate as you can, but if it happens, it happens!

Ha ha! I used to be the same way. I didn't temp this cycle. I had in my head that I didn't need to since I was been monitored. I really wished I had though. I'm trying to keep my hopes up that this is my cycle but if by some chance it's not, I'm temping next cycle.

I hope this is both of our cycles and we won't have to worry about next cycle!!
